Class of '55 AwardThe Class of 1955 Student Off-Campus Study Fund was established by the class of 1955 in honor of their 50th reunion. The class of 1955 acknowledges that off-campus study opportunities are increasingly sought after by students today, providing them with a broader view of the world and unique, hands-on experiences that they need to distinguish themselves to future employers and to succeed.
The Class of 1955 Student Off-Campus Study Fund provides support for Cornell students who are studying off-campus. Awards will be based on the student's academic standing, a statement of purpose, a faculty recommendation and the cost of the off-campus program. Students participating in off-campus internships sponsored by the Berry Center, Dimensions or the Cornell Fellows program are not eligible to apply. Students who have already received a Class of '55 award will not be eligible to re-apply.
Questions about study abroad options should be addressed to the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies. Applications and recommendation letters will be reviewed by ISOC members.
The deadline for applications and recommendations for the Class of '55 scholarships is March 18, 2015.
If you have any questions about the award process, please contact Kimberly Cullen (x4385) in the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies.
